Sugar-Free Baking Cheat Sheet

Sugar-Free Baking Tips Chart

I created this sugar-free baking tips sheet with reminders of how you use sugar-free natural sweeteners and a couple of widely available low carb artificial sweeteners. Feel free to post this chart on your own website, or link back to the chart as a reference. The more people who have access to information explaining how to use these healthy sweeteners, the better! I’ll update the body of this post (not the comments) with answers as more questions come in. You are welcome to provide your own feedback and answers to questions in the comments. I’d love to hear about your experiences with sugar-free baking, and any information you might have to add!  Hopefully we can all collaborate to make this a helpful post for both fledgling and veteran sugar-free bakers.

Bread, made healthy! Tasty Grain-Free and Low Carb Rolls, perfect for sandwiches.

A reader request led to the experiments that produced these paleo bread rolls, made without grains, tree nuts, or dairy.

 

It’s bread, made without grains! I jumped for joy a bit when these turned out so well.

 

The sweet aroma of yeast-y dough filled up my kitchen while I was shaping and baking these promising mounds into the perfectly browned, crusty n’ soft rolls you see below. 

Healthy Low Carb, Gluten-Free Bread

 

To my readers, who’ve wrapped their burgers in lettuce, their sammies in gluten-free wraps, and have grown accustomed to using a knife and fork for formerly handheld entrees – this one is for you guys. You who have dutifully forgone high carb, refined foods to avoid allergens, take charge of your health, and eat like Grok (Mark Sisson’s paleolithic alter ego) can eat bread again without fear. Go ahead… take a bite!
